The interior of the Porsche 911 Sport Classic is a modern interpretation of a delightful throwback to the past. The materials are of top quality and the optional classic nougat-colored leather seen in the Sport Classic was last used in the 918 Spyder - and this is applied to the seat bolsters and shells, as well as on the door trim. There's a Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur logo on the lid of the center storage compartment and a silver 911 badge on the dashboard to remind you that you're sitting in something special. The gauge cluster and Sport Chrono Stopwatch both feature green numerals and white needles. The rest of the interior is mostly shared with other 911s.
Beneath the bespoke upholstery, the front seats of the Porsche 911 Sport Classic are the same 18-way power-adjustable adaptive sport chairs from the Turbo S with a memory feature. They manage to hold you in place securely when the corners come up fast, yet remain supportive and comfortable for long-distance touring. The bolsters even respond to cornering forces to give you extra support. While there's a lot of interior space for tall folks up front, even small children will complain about the lack of space in the second row, despite the claims of 2+2 seating. Those rear seats are only really suitable for storing stuff. All-round visibility is better than in most supercars, but the low 51-inch roof height still requires you to stoop to get inside.

There are two available interior colors on the Porsche 911 Sport Classic and the default is black. The seat bolsters, shells, door panels, sunvisors, steering wheel, steering column, and even the air-vent vanes are all trimmed in black semi-aniline leather and the seat centers are in Pepita cloth with a classic houndstooth pattern. The Pepita cloth on the seat centers is replaced with perforated leather if the ventilated seats are specified. Far nicer and more period-appropriate is the black/Cognac color scheme that replaces most of the black in the interior with the Cognac nougat-colored shade. There are Porsche crests embossed on the headrests, a silver "911" badge, and silver doorsill kick plates. The numerals of the gauge cluster and Sport Chrono Stopwatch are green and the needles are white. Woodgrain finishes are applied to the horizontal dashboard strip and the center console. The underside of the carbon-fiber roof panel is trimmed in Race-Tex material.
The Porsche 911 Sport Classic's trunk space comprises the 4.6 cubic feet available under the front carbon-fiber frunk lid, but Porsche hasn't indicated that the Sport Classic has the same 9.3 cu-ft available at the back as the 911 Turbo. Still, the small second row can be used for additional packing space when needed.
Interior storage is somewhat lacking and although there are decently sized door pockets, two cupholders, and a fairly commodious glove compartment, other storage spaces are in short supply and more options would not have gone amiss.
The Porsche 911 Sport Classic is essentially fitted with all the features of the Turbo S, so it's comprehensively equipped with performance hardware such as Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, PASM sport suspension, rear-axle steering, and dynamic engine mounts. Among the luxury and convenience features are keyless entry, push-button start, heated 18-way power front seats, dual-zone climate control, the Sport Chrono package, five driving modes, cruise control, and a HomeLink transceiver. Driver assists are in short supply, and only front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, automatic LED headlights, forward-collision warning, and automatic emergency braking are standard.
The infotainment system comes from the regular 911 and has a 10.9-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi capability, integrated Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Spotify, voice commands, navigation, and a 12-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system. The Bose system can be upgraded to a 13-speaker Burmester audio system for $3,980. The Sport Chrono package is standard on the Sport Classic and includes a configurable dashtop chronograph, a mode dial on the steering wheel, and Porsche's Track Precision app.
The frunk holds 4.6 cu-ft but Porsche has not specified whether the Sport Classic has the same 9.3-cu-ft rear cargo capacity as the 911 Turbo.
The car is classified as a 2+2, but in reality, it's made for two adults seated in front only, with the rear seats not even big enough for children.
